As there seems to be some connection between this project and Papers, is it ok to ask if the acquisition by ReadCube of Papers means anything either good (or bad) for Manuscripts? I actually like ReadCube pretty well (except for proprietary, un-exportable PDF notes/highlights and its Adobe Air platform).
I'm currently trying to decide on the right ref/writing app pair for my upcoming dissertation. Feeling a bit stuck. I'd like to use Manuscripts, but I have some of the same concerns as others here: not sure if it's quite mature enough yet. Also, I'd like to use Papers, but don't know if it will be abandoned or merge into ReadCube, but maybe you will do some integration with them anyway.
